Hello! I am looking for some help on what could possibly be wrong with my male German Blue Ram (image below). He has developed the rash/lesion/wound/ on his side, and I’m not exactly sure what it could be. Other than this wound he is eating, breathing, moving around and acting normal.

I have been treating the entire tank with Paraguard for the last 4 days, just in case it is some type of external parasite that could be transmitted. Since starting treatment I have noticed the redness has turned into white, but at that same time it looks like the effected area is falling off and getting bigger. This could be a sign of healing, but I think it could also mean that it’s not healing.

My water parameters as of today with API test kit:
ammonia: 0.0
Nitrate: ~20ppm

Any help would be greatly appreciated as this is my first “sensitive” fish, and I’m not experienced in fish healing!
